NMU without even bugreport nor contacting maintainer
Recently, Joel Klecker made a NMU for fakeroot without contacting me.
On the BTS I cannot find any reason why he would have made this NMU,
and the changelog entry doesn't tell me much eighter.
When I found out he made that NMU (18 jan), I sent him an email, asking
why he did it. As of today, I haven't recieved any reply.
Also, the `fix' he applied to fakeroot, seemed to be a bad-quick-hack:
he removed code written by Ray Dassen that probes for the current libc
version, and simply removed the "libc6" dependancy.
I have no idea what the NMU by Joek Klecker fixes.
So, my response to that is to just ignore that NMU by Joel, and remove
But it rather annoys me that a fellow Debian developer applies NMU's
without even and entry in the BTS or mailing me -- and then, after that,
refusing to answer my (very polite) email for more information.
Is Joel Klecker <email@example.com> known for other such antics?
How many such jokes must one pull to be removed from the developers
Concerning NMU fakeroot version: fakeroot_0.4.4-4.1
Last upload by me: 13 nov 1999;
NMU by Joel Klecker: 29 Dec 1999.
I only found out about Joel Klecker's NMU when someone else
(Yann DIRSON) mentioned it.
As a sidenote: Generally I am all for NMU's. I think it's good when
developpers help each other, and I often ask people to NMU my packages.
But I find it very strange that Joel Klecker didn't contact me at all,
